Bland collection of ads that barely rises above the mundane
11 ads in 11 minutes. Ordinary people in ordinary situations trying to convince an audience to smoke Newport. A rather bland collection of ads that barely rises above the mundane. Even most of the jingles are bland.
The best ad is at 8.40 when a man who misses a bus watches as the woman in a Newport billboard comes to life and sings the jingle “Newport tastes better” in a rollicking jazzy style
Video quality ranges from good to poor; audio quality is okay.
